Re: I Dreamed I was in Juarez

Juarez
fruitless escape
from El Paso
thus the dream
try Los Algodones
more class
no revolvers

Re: Cinquain for Pensioners

Karen's Lament (Ode To A Bad Trip)

You must admit, it's started well, No rain in sight that we can tell. How eagerly we don our packs, Ignoring any warning bell. . . Whose idea was this, anyway? With forty pounds upon our backs (Each carries what another lacks) We gaily step out on the trail And note there are no other tracks. . . Wh...

Re: Poeta Aetrnam

I know what you mean. That's the kind of feeling that led me to write this a few years ago. It ended up being the preface for an ebook of poetry now on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Sea-Change-William-Morris-Kahn-ebook/dp/B010ISU620 if you want to look). The odd thing is that, not long after I wrot...

Poeta Aetrnam

Words have power And if craftily joined, There is magic, too. But a poem needs a voice, A dimension of sound, Or it is incomplete. A poem is a song Without music.

An Early Memory

Early Memory 1941 Standing in his crib, crying Because he hears the sirens crying. Grandma croons it’s ok, it’s ok But her body When she picks him up Sings a different song The sirens’ song And he wails louder Like the sirens....

And how disappointed
He must be to find
That no one is out there
Who cares even vaguely
Enough to be plotting
To get him
